Programs & Timetable
Mon to Fri from 4pm to 6:15pm
For refining technique
Our Stroke Development Program has 3 ability-based levels, with our friendly staff determining the most appropriate level for your child. The program is designed to develop correct technique across all four strokes, and increase endurance.
After completing the Stroke Development program, children will be proficient in backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly and freestyle, competitive dives and turns, and have a basic understanding of swimming rules and principles. A child who is confident, proficient and has endurance is a child less likely to panic if they find themselves in a difficult situation.

Times vary for Squads depending on level. Most Squads run in the late afternoon and evening with one early Saturday morning class for our Performance Transition Squad.
For advancing swimmers
Our squads cater to both recreational and competitive swimmers, improving their technique and fitness. The emphasis in Squads is on endurance, perfecting technique and mastering competitive starts and turns. There are also opportunities for swimmers to progress to advanced competitive squads.

“After 7 years of swimming lessons with two boys at Carlile, I would highly recommend their swimming programs. Every teacher and supervisor has been professional, enthusiastic, supportive and kind. Our boys love swimming and look forward to seeing their teachers every week.”Kylie EdmondsonCarlile Swimming Ryde

“As a former Carlile student myself, when it came time to enrol my own children in swim school, I didn’t hesitate to put them into Carlile. The program is really carefully developed to teach children the best technique. The teachers are thorough and the atmosphere is fun and relaxed. Kids really enjoy coming here!”Olivia BeckfordCarlile Swimming Ryde
